Brady Rodgers’ breakout season in Class AAA has earned him the starting nod for the Pacific Coast League in the Triple-A All-Star Game on July 13 in Charlotte, N.C.
Rodgers has gone from unprotected in December’s Rule 5 Draft to perhaps the frontrunner for a potential promotion if the Astros were to need a starter from Class AAA. The 25-year-old righthander has a 2.83 ERA and PCL-best 1.03 WHIP in 13 starts for Fresno this year.
Fellow Fresno righthanders James Hoyt and Mike Hauschild will join Rodgers at the Triple-A All-Star Game, which pits the PCL against the International League. The 29-year-old Hoyt has been dominant as Fresno’s closer, striking out 68 batters in 38 1/3 innings while posting a 1.88 ERA and converting a PCL-best 19 saves. Hauschild, 26, has a 3.02 ERA in 14 starts.
